I want to create an application in order to read, modify and save DICOM files without using any third party tools like MERGECOM, DCMTK etc..
If any one have any idea, please help me.

If you want to write an independent application, then you should start by studying the DICOM standard [^].
Some (dated) documents are also available at Wikipedia [^].
I assume if you know the DICOM file format, you can use Windows File Operation functions to read, modify and save the DICOM files. You can refer the following MSDN link on Windows File Management Functions:[^]
Idea is good to create a lib to read, modify or save DICOM file.
For that you should surely be through with the DICOM file format.
Please refer([^])

Even with dcmtk it will take a good amount of time to create application to read, modify and save DICOM file( which may even include DICOMDIR,.dcm etc).
I think it take a time span of 6 or more month to create a new library similar to DCMTK.

I hope a programmer should try for resuability. :)
